In Dead Space, as part of the crew of the USG Kellion you are headed on a repair mission to repair a ship in distress. Things go from bad to worse, starting with the crash landing and seemingly silent and "Dead" ship, the USG Ishimuru. Offering a non-traditional over the shoulder viewing angle, the game gets right into the action as soon as the ventilation systems are activated. From there, things get worse with the appearance of the Necromorphs. Survival now becomes a primary concern for the primary character Isaac Clarke. Survive and you may find the loved one that was aboard the Ishimuru. In one frame a Necromorph is visible right before an attack from behind.

The Sapphire HD 4670 Ultimate provides playable frame rates up to 1680x1050, but falls to less-than-playable even when overclocked at 2560x1600. This if course can be improved by turning off the AA at this resolution. The Nvidia cards do not seem to support the 2560x1600 resolution on the monitor used. The ATI cards have no display issues at this resolution. I'm not sure if this is a driver related issue yet or not, as three sets of drivers have displayed this anomaly.
